Erna, Sully - Hometown Life Lyrics

I know you've waited for me here so long
To see me since I've been gone
And so as these years roll on
I always come back to where I belong
My hometown life

And have you noticed every way I've changed
Cause to me I've simply stayed the same
But every time I walk away
You leave a little piece of you inside of me
And made me who I am today

My hometown life
Its spirits inside
My hometown tonight
Is filled with the light unfaded
That I created
My hometown tonight oooh

I walk around these streets
And stare at the things that remind me of me
I take it all inside and breathe in the air
Thats so unclean, yet keeps me alive
My hometown tonight oooh

My hometown life
My hometown life
Its spirits inside
My hometown tonight
Is filled with the light unfaded
That I created
My hometown tonight
My hometown life
My hometown tonight
My hometown life

  7. Dejan Nashoku

    I was never aware of this beautiful album... This is pure. This is soul... Hope Sully and Godsmack come to Macedonia someday! It would be a dream come true! Even though I don't know him personally, I can say Sully and the guys from Godsmack have always been my friends because of their music, when no one was there for me. Thank you for that and well done on this masterpiece my friend!

  8. Christina

    I thank your parents for conceiving you sir! Your voice and talent give me chills. Your lyrics, I can relate to. Thank you from the depths of my soul for pursuing your talent and becoming who you are today. Thank you thank you! Hugs w love C

  9. Kim Brannon

    No matter what this guys sings, I would listen.  He could sing me the phone book and I would love it!This man is so talented and genuine.  I'm amazed that people can only see what has been, not what is or could be.  Never stop creating and reinventing yourself, and people will follow.

  10. Ben Gipson

    Wow! This is album can't be desired in a short time. Life, pain, love and emotions are placed in musical notes and lyrics. Thanks for being and staying real Sully!!!!

  11. Stephen Miller

    Sully I love your music. I actually really enjoy this type of music cause you really get to hear your vocals just like they acoustic god smack cd that you guys made. Especially on the song awake you have a beautiful voice and when your voice is the Main instrument of the song it makes it that much better. I’ve been to a few god smack concerts and I’ve always hoped to see you perform the acoustic version of awake but I’ve never had that honor. Something about your music really touches my soul and now with these solo albums it’s weird it’s like all the materials you put out happen to be exactly where I’m at in my life . Like the song you made for your daughter when I hear it it touches my hart cause I’m thinking of my son as I’m listening to it almost like it was me who wrote it for my son . Just amazing you and Eddie Veda are the last two singers left that touch me like that still with the music . Sorry I left out Aaron Lewis too music is the one thing that I can not live without so thank you for everything you’ve done

  12. Malika Sfm

    I love godsmack and Sully as an individual artist. I started listening to godsmack about three years ago when my brother showed me the song voodoo I've been hooked ever since. just recently about two days ago I found out that Sully had individual songs I thought that since I love the music of godsmack I'd like his individual music and I was right. hope godsmack has a long road ahead and hope Sully keeps making individual music as well.

    I feel it's only necessary for you or the whole band to do a track about Salem...regardless of how the record label may feel...just sayin, I think you guys would bring a very unique dynamic with the tribals...

    always been a GODSMACK fan! since the first album, they are the best rock band that with their music get into your soul. with the music I got out of the toughest situations and relationships in my life and will always be thankful for that. thank you sully, Tony and the rest of the guys. you change people's lives for the better, you did mine anyway.
    will always be buying and listening to your music until my dying days!

  53. Kell

  57. Scarlett Marks

    This was on repeat up here when it came out last month I love it, I think the softer side of him is wonderful, if you want the harder stuff listen to Godsmack and only godsmack since they don't have many slow songs.

  58. S. Thornburg

    Beautiful.Nothing else to say.Negative comments mean nothing.

  59. Pavlo Ilnytskyy

  60. Αλεξάνδρος Φιλίππου

    wtf !!new album yeah awesome !!!

  61. John Dryfuse

    yourll always be a great musician.

  62. Michel Stoner

    talent I say

  63. Michel Stoner

    sully u sound real visit Kentucky more.

  64. Mad King

    I love this mans work, between Godsmack and his solo work its a strong variety of musical genres and overall opens our ears and minds to the reality that music isnt defined by the genre it is categorized by but the individual identities of each individual song. I used to have a very linear view on music Hard Rock and Metal all day everyday and I thought all other music was trash and when avalon came out I opened my ears my heart and my mind and found things in each song that was beautiful to me individually and from that I found the realization that all music can be beautiful and perfect for someone and that just because it doesnt touch me in a special way it doesnt take away from that songs individual greatness and since then have found songs in every genre that I can enjoy and love to hear.
    music is in our lives to bless us in ways we cant do ourselves and there is no excuse for tainting anyones blessing, you dont have to like all music but just try to appreciate the fact that each song is special to someone in some way.

    Peter S

    Agreed, and it helps Sully is a lyrical genius.

  65. socks

  66. Okami Hogo-sha

    i love it

  67. Tristin Pickle

    To be honest the ones who are hating on sully and his new songs. you arnt true fans. these songs sound a bit personal. and form the heart, and hes sharing his life. And yall are hating on him. Personaly i like everything sully has come out with. i grew up with his music as a child, i was born in 96. iv been jammin with him and godsmack since i was born, my dad was a huge fan of godsmack. and other bands, so when he wassnt around. i turned to gosmack and Sullys solo music. and im a fan of everything because i respect his musical talents.


    anyone hating the magic that is Sully Erna truly does not know what real music is all about. These songs are simply amazing

  68. Boyko Bonev

    20 October - Sofia. Super!!!! I already have tickets and hope that will be great show :)

  69. Adelina Rudova

    Just bought three tickets for you concert in Sofia. I remember two years ago, when I heard Avalon, how I imagined that I would go to the USA and see you live and since then I've been waiting for you to go on tour. Last year I even was in the USA, but there weren't any concerts of yours. And now you're coming to my hometown, I can't imagine how lucky must I be!! Thank you and see you really soon. Cheers from Bulgaria.

  70. André Tavares

    very cool music sully great voice greetings from lisboa

  71. Michael Lebert

    Not far into my own journey but this songs makes me reflect on my life and the city I lived in the most,the people in it and that I know/see,etc.

  72. Michael Lebert

    I think what Sully meant to say is this album sounds different than Avalon because Hometown Life is more about his experiences and Avalon sounds more like a deep sounding spiritual type of music. Not a musician myself but that's what I feel and think.

  73. Timothy Cottle

    why am I seeing distasteful comments? you guys are clueless! sully rocks as a solo artist just as much as he does with godsmack! keep it flowing Sully! you bring a lot to the table of music!

    Winged Assassin

    im not clueless. its just not my shit. however, that doesnt mean it isnt quality material. it is.

    Timothy Cottle

    Sully is godsmack, sully is everything he does.

    Winged Assassin

    +Timothy Cottle yes....and?

    Timothy Cottle

    My statement is rhetorical, it does not require you to answer. Don't hate, move on.

    Winged Assassin

    +Timothy Cottle i dont hate man....

  74. Gina Always a VIP!

    Beautifully done! Can't wait VIP Nov Hampton Beach Casino!!

  75. Mountain Mirrors - heavy acoustic vibe

    I'm really missing Lisa Guyer on this. She added a mystical and powerful presence to the Avalon cd and live shows.


    Sully is a musical genius I love his music either with godsmack or his solo efforts it's all great music

  77. tomcatrecords

    on a second listen- this song is actually Fantastic!

  78. tomcatrecords

    I find this song to be most excellent!

  79. Metal Bulgaria

    What's with the turkey flag.... :/ and all the muslim symbolism..

  80. Slim

    Sully you sound like you have things going on man. I love your art, and your message has always coincided with my phase of life. I can't wait to hear what else you have to share. Blessed be brother.

  81. mike reilly

    You didn't text me call me what the fuck you know I need to hear from you call me We should read the post that I love I answered every one of them know 15 years wasn't for nothing this realation ship is far from over you Saudi said tilled die not a day sonner I'll. Be seeing you missing you too hard

  82. Nathan Duffy

    people can't appreciate real music and only like the heavy stuff. Sully's a True Artist and Songwriter. amazing Singer.

  83. Jacquelia Rawson

    I preordered this album

  84. John Loupe

    this guy has what it takes to go solo or with godsmack love his voice rock on sully love the new stuff man

  85. Terok Turekson

    Breath-taking album, Sully. Stay the way you're. Greetings from germany.

  86. Ron Riffe

    I like it. To the haters prove that you can get out there and do better.

    read what you wrote

    Winged. Its you *fan* that when I say pretty sure the fans are fickle, I sound like I don't know what im talking about.. but I know what im talking about. Its a percentage of you Godsmack fans. Expand your taste buds man. Theres a point to that, if you can sit there critiquing or snubbing it.. then go and make the exact same music that you love, I think that's why Debbie Harry said we need more female musicians. She claims that men will forever do the same thing. Except in this instance of doing a second solo album.. someone did something different took a risk twice over. Music should either move you or make you move.

    Winged Assassin

    +Ashlee Bini i understand what you mean. however, i dont like this album so much. that doesnt mean that it isnt quality material. it is. just not the kind of music i enjoy so much. that doesnt mean its bad


    Ron Riffe well i just find out my favorite signer is doing solo. and to be honest, I like it a lot. first, beacause it is differant then godsmack. second, it shows a vocal capability that fans already know about, but now can't be denied.

    read what you wrote

    Starting to feel like summer here Ron. one month to go.

    Fringey Moose

    Smack them straight back into line

  87. Павел Типыч

    Прекрасен! Как всегда. Салли мы на одной волне ;)

  93. Penelope Aldaya

    You have a very unique way of interpreting the deepest emotions.Never failed, never will. God damn I worship you!

  94. Brad Carpenter

    A nice change of pace from Godsmack. I like what I've heard from this album so far.

  95. Nate H.

    The more I've listened to it and took it in the more it's grown on me.
